53 year old with my own business, although do not define myself by what I do 9-5 – I have many interests outside of this, many of which I am passionate about.
I am an honest, caring, trustworthy, romantic and I hope smartly presented professional that has just come out of a 14-year relationship. In the space of my 53 years have had plenty of time to do ‘Lessons Learned’ and have tried to grow though my mistakes which are many in number, however, do retain a ‘can-do’ mindset, enabling me to re-group and start again.
I count among my greatest passions music, which has always provided me with inner strength, and in particular the piano which I love, although getting round to playing every day does not always happen in a busy schedule. I also love languages and travel, in particular Germany (Ich kann auch Deutsch ein Bisschen sprechen) and have lived at various time in the Netherlands and Austria. The urge to travel and discover new places is still alive and kicking within me and became a dual-national a couple of years ago (no prizes for guessing what the 2nd nationality is ;-)).
I have a number of very good friends all of whom I love deeply and try to get to see as often as their and my own schedules’ allow (work often means that I do long commutes in the week and so sometimes weekends tend to be ‘mellow’). I can fit into most situations and strike up a conversation with whoever that may be, so would consider myself to be appropriately outgoing. Whilst enjoying socialising, would love to come home to my ideal guy and enjoy some quality ‘us’ time.
In a nutshell, that is it and will always respond to anybody who reads this and wants to reach out.
One more before I go…love men with beards ;-).
I am looking for…
A guy who is confident within himself, and knows what he wants from life, without this descending into the arrogant or self-aggrandising, now being able to consider life in terms of the enduring and the integral.
He is professional, without being ‘welded’ to his job, defining and valuing himself through the richness of his life-experience, willing and wanting to share that in a deep and meaningful way with a partner seeking the same.
He is emotionally intelligent, compassionate, creative (may play an instrument or just have a keen appreciation of art, design, music and literature) yet he is also practical. Would be great if he could speak a foreign language also!
